economy. now while we're one step closer to the end goal, most agree we have heavy lifting before this conference. i serve as a chairman of the house agriculture subcommittee on conservation energy and forestry with jurisdiction over titles 2, 8, and 9. at the subcommittee we spent years examining the 2008 farm bill along with the range of other issues under the purview. i'm proud of the product put forward and passedded out of the house. tho this work, we made improvements with a name towards efficiency and value. reforms under all three titles create savings while improving outcomes. while many areas are similar to the senate bill, a number of are different including provisions to address areas that our national forest system affected by invasive species and fire damage. the house and senate addressed the matter through different means. it's my hope through legislation we promote the health and well being of the national forest system as effectively as possible. the preferred language in title 9 # or referred to as the fairness act, bipartisan support, congressman and i along wi
strategy to build and grow our economy. the u.s. remains the largest economy in the world, and is the largest recipient of direct investment from foreign countries, as the secretary mentioned. the competition from your partnership is fierce. it is global. the united states can no longer rely on being the biggest economy or the obvious choice. we have to work every day to do our very best. select usa is the result of it the president's broad commitment to make it easier to do business. we are centralizing resources to give information and assistance you need to navigate the u.s. marketplaces. that is why it is so important we are joined i representatives of state and local governments because they are partners in this effort. he should leave today with resources and relationships that you need to make select usa work for you and for your businesses. put simply, we want your partnership, and we are going to work hard to earn your trust and your confidence so you do select usa. i am thrilled to be joined on the stage by a great panel of business leaders who can offer there's
're talking about a second of the economy that is now vulnerable, because the web site did not work, and obamacare is built on what is a very, very faulty assumption, and presumption because of mandate, that young people will sign up for health care they don't need. these risks are very high. where are the republicans headed now, and what is the course you all will follow? >> we are going to continue to get to the bottom of this you point odd one major issue, the cyber security issue, as you heard, that you know we're concerned about that you know, therure americans who are managing to get on to web site at this point, at some time, they are vulnerable it cyber security issues. if you saw kathleen sebelius she looked like deer in the headlights but she could not answer those question. this thing is dying of self iinflicted ported mortal woundss go with something we know will work. lou: that is? >> american health care reform act, it covering these, and provides affordable healthy care, but it does not with the patient-centered approach in the free market. lou: and congress welcome
the economy is not healthy enough to reduce the central bank's $85 million a month stimulus. we have a couple of minutes, ali, what is worrying the fed. >> reporter: first you said the stocks went down. i don't think there was a human in america who thought they were going to hear the fed say they were going to stop putting their $85 million a month in the economy. the economy was going okay for a while, but they felt that the budget nonsense in washington, the government shutdown, the ongoing fiscal disputes, they feel they have taken a bite out of the economy, and then they cite a slightly weaker jobs picture. we have the private sector report, a predictor of the government report, 130,000 private sector jobs were added in october. 130,000 is well below the average for the past 12 months. you take a slightly tepid job picture and then the government mucking things around. we'll stay in the business of putting all of this money in the economy and keep interest rates low so people will borrow and spend. >> is it working? >> with all that the fed is doing we don't have a hot cooking economy. i
found in earlier ones in threats to the economy and many saw this as a sign the fed thinks the economy is strengthening and might end qe sooner rather than later. larry, back to you. >> mary, why do you know more about this than i do? so facebook reports pretty good earnings and the stock jumps up big, but then the stock goes back down. is that just thin trading after hours or what? >> i think some people maybe were disappointed that the earnings weren't stronger than expected at that point. as you said, they both beat on the revenue as well as the earnings side, but there seemed to be some disappointment after hours and people were looking back and saying it wasn't the blockbuster report they were expecting. >> mary thompson, thanks very, very much. now let's talk to andrew bush, author and publisher of the bush update. peter schiff joins us, the ceo of euro pacific capital. you know, i understand that they moved some things from the -- from the statement today, but i just have a totally -- i'm going to you, peter. i read "the new york times" sunday with this big story about the fed s
-term solution to our deficits that is balanced and restores certainty to our economy. what we do not need is more gimmicks and partisan games. like we will have today, frankly. we are going to have a vote on the resolution, which is disapproving of the raising of the debt limit. everybody knows that's not a real vote, and almost everybody on this floor knows that if we pursued that policy it would be damaging to america, to the military that was just brought up, and to our nation and every republican leader has said that not increasing the debt limit is an alternative that ought to be pursued. yet, we have this vote. that resolution has already been rejected by the senate and stands no chance of surviving a presidential veto. it is, frankly, simply political cover and a waste of our time. keys to any budget solution, mr. speaker, must be compromise and a seriousness of purpose. americans want to see that seriousness, and they want to see much, much, much less of the political gamesmanship. some of which we'll practice today, unfortunately. republicans and democrats, i believe, in looking
the government shutdown affects the economy. inflation still remains a no show that would give the fed some wiggle room. i also want to talk about a dow component, nike. along with the dow industrials and the s&p earlier this morning. nike shares are up now. they got enough grade from morgan stanley to overweight. so we will continue to check on them throughout the day. back to you. adam: thank you very much. nicole: health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius taking full responsibility of the rollout of obamacare. joining us from capitol hill with more on the secretary's testimony. we are hearing word like she's frustrated, wants to rebuild confidence. what are you seeing and hearing? >> she is the one i should be held responsible for all of this. saying hhs secretary kathleen sebelius is expected back before this committee in december to talk about how many people have actually enrolled in obamacare. right now the administration is not saying because they don't have the numbers. >> i'm not asking about what they enrolled in or whether they came in and said they were 65 and work
u.s. economy, 100 years of growth does the, forward, upwards and onwards. our infrastructure is about at 3.0. other economies, like you said, larry, are putting in versions 6.0 in infrastructure but has not got their private sectors up that much. they will enter, but not enter where we are. they are licensing our technology. they learned from the mistakes we have made. they are like nation states competing. other countries are going to catch up on the private sector side of it, especially if their infrastructure is advanced. many of us are involved in ideas here. this capital point he makes -- and he is the doyen of understanding that -- and how we can model and maybe i can go to an example. it works and it works really well. it is a profit maker. it is a government arm, but a phenomenal example of how all things government are not bad, right? we need to figure out how we do that for infrastructure. we need to have a summit approach to that topic alone, because i think ports and rail and airports and all that, this is becoming a bottleneck. the positive side is the reason our
.s. economy. to give away on the margin everything for nothing it's just can't work. connell: let's talk about the economics of it for a second. the conversation we had, in terms of advising the president, and the other for mitt romney. the argument is look at what mitt romney worked on in massachusetts, it works. >> i don't think it does work very well in massachusetts. it is one state with one set of policies. that i don't think makes sense, but at least it is just one state. when you are combining hawaii with alaska. you've got all these diversions and what people want. you cannot make them all happy. that is why the market works so very well, they are transparent, people can design what they want. and people have a right to be wrong. they have a right to not get enough insurance or get too much insurance. dagen: i think people like free better than choice. if you look at "the new york times" today, a large piece of millions of people could get their premiums completely covered if they take the lower-cost plan just by the subsidy. that is a lot of winners for people not having to pay out-of
in massachusetts and the national economy, the incredible growth of clean energy, energy efficiency and the jobs that come with these industries. according to the massachusetts clean energy center, our state alone has gained 20,000 jobs in these sectors since 2010, with another 10,000 new jobs expected in the next year alone. massachusetts has become the nation's most energy-efficient state. boston is ranked as the nation's most energy-efficient city. our shores will host the first offshore wind farm with a new construction terminal built in new bedford, allowing our fishermen to work alongside our wind energy workers. massachusetts is number seven in the nation in deploying solar energy, even though we're more well known for the perfect storm than perfectly sunny days. these advances, these jobs, these technologies have flourished in massachusetts because we have set the right policies and encouraged our companies to lead. massachusetts governor deval patrick set high goals for clean energy in our state and we have already surpassed them. boston mayor tom men even owe wanted -- menino wanted bo

the burns. just one pepcid® complete works fast and lasts. >>> it could take until march for the economy to fully recover from the effects of the 16-day government shutdown. in a new "usa today" survey of top economists, 63% say the repeated budget battles over the past few years have hurt the economy some or a lot. one economist says, quote, we're falling down a fiscal flight of stairs and we're bouncing from one step to the next, one crisis to the next. it's been estimated the shutdown cost the u.s. economy $24 billion, but at least taxpayers will get some of that back. the labor department says federal workers who collected unemployment benefits will have to give the money back since they will be getting paid retroactively. >>> let me bring in editor in chief "the economist" john micklethwait. more than half of the economists are less optimistic about growth prospects than they were three months ago. could it take until march to get over the effects we felt from this? >> i think it can. i was one of those people who were skeptical about that and thought it was just a political crisis.
the u.s. economy is slowing down a bit. the fed announced yesterday it's pressing ahead with its stimulus campaign. includes low interest rates. i guess my micro phone went out. central bank says it will continue helping the economy because of weak signs in the housing and labor markets. on the positive side, u.s. deficit for the 2013 budget year, how about this, falling to $680 billion, that is a five year low. breaking news overnight in sear gentleman. an if i recall with the chemical weapons -- has met the deadline to destroy -- for tomorrow. and this comes as health officials racing this morning to stop a polio outbreak inflicting yet more damage amid the country's civil war. world health organization is confirming ten cases all in children under the age of four. there are 20 additional suspected cases. the outbreak is in two villages close to the border with iraq. hospitals there are in ruins as you might imagine and without power or proper medicine. another likely factor in the outbreaks is the lack of sanitation. health officials say about half of syria's children have bee
absolutely no sense, especially since we know that nothing has happened differently with our economy. >> can private charities kick in? i give money to food banks, people give money to food banks. and you should. but no one should be fooled into thinking this can solve the problem. every food bank, soup kitchen, food pantry in america distributes about $5,000 worth of food. so this goes into effect as if all of these charities didn't exist for a year. >> the cuts that happen on friday, automatically that no one is talking about, they're not like a political issue. those are equal to the sum total of privately charity funded food assistance in the entire nation. >> as media matters pointed out, this is the first network show to even discuss 48 million people losing food. and the house cuts on top of this would be eight times what charities distribute in a year. >> then congressman, i want to go to you on that. the republicans proposed a $39 billion cuts to programs a year. what is interesting, it seems like food stamps there was something there was a political consensus around, until recently
society, of our economy, and of this country as a whole. and i know that there are many different perspectives on social policy, on agricultural production policy, but i'm confident that the spirit that's been demonstrated in achieving this point, passage of both bills out of the house and senate, committees and across the floor, that we can accomplish that. and i would be most remiss if i didn't note the special appreciation i have for my ranking member and my friend, i believe, colin peterson, as well as all of my friends at this table and most assuredly on the other side of this table. i take this responsibility that we have together to accomplish this important goal very seriously. i live in a part of the country where between mother nature and federal policy on two, almost three occasions in this last century, my folks saw their way of life nearly completely destroyed. i know that we cannot persuade mother nature necessarily on any given day to do things differently, but we can provide the tools that enable our producers back home to withstand both the forces of nature that p
years and it will grow the economy by $1.4 trillion over 20 years, which adds 5.4% to the gdp by 2033. it has broad bipartisan support from democrats and republicans, labor leaders, law enforcement, and faith leaders. the president is willing to work with the blonde both sides of the aisle to get things done. it is good for business. it is good for our economy as a whole am i and it is the right thing to do. we believe it is time for the house to follow the senate and take action. secondly, as you are already as early as this evening a-15,enate may vote on s which would place into law a comprehensive and lasting protections against employment discrimination based on sexual or gender identity. you may have seen the op-ed in the huffington post calling upon the president can sign it into law. we encourage lawmakers to act on this important legislation. because in america, who you are and who you love should never be a fireable offense. a qualified worker should not fear being fired from their jobs, or otherwise earn the chance -- denied the chance to earn a living for themselves simply
. fed watchers say ben bernanke and company may point to softer readings on the economy to signal that the policy will be extended into next year. >>> as for the other items on today's economic agenda, the october adp employment report is going to be released at 8:15 eastern time. it's expected to show 150,000 private jobs were added this month. the whisper number, though, is below that. we'll see what happens. coming up at 8:30 eastern time, we have the september consumer price index. it was delayed by the government shutdown, but it will be hitting the tape today at 8:30. the futures this morning, you can see right now, are indicated higher. dow futures up by about 55 points. s&p futures up by close to 6 1/2. andrew, back over to you. welcome back. >> thank you, becky. it's nice to be back. we have corporate news this morning, the big one being jpmorgan and the justice department reportedly hit a stumbling block over that 13 million settlement over the mortgage bonds we've been talking about for the past two weeks. the two sides are set to be arguing over whether mistakes to be

and again that they're willing to hijack the entire party and the country and the economy and grind progress to absolute halt if they don't get a hundred percent of what they want. now this snts just speculation. we just saw it last month. here, in virginia, you felt the pain of the first government shutdown in 17 years. >> now, what's interesting about president obama's remarks, is that he didn't mention obama care at all. now, on the other side of the aisle, republicans have been trying to hammer all democrats over obama care and ken cuccinelli has been campaigning with a number of high-profile americans and talking about that. and ken cuccinelli says if you like obama care, you should vote now. democrats say that they've been leading in the polls and terry mcauliffe has led every single pole in this case since july. they think that their side works and they plan on circulating some of those videos saying just that on wednesday morning, should he win. don? >> well, we are see webds morning. fresh off of her snl job, kerry washington is out on the trail, as well, right? >> she was. and that

contracting the economy rather than expanding the economy. the very practical matter there's really no disagreement over the desire to limit risk. the disagreement to say there is some is over the regulatory excess. for example we are getting about every 2.8 days we get a new regulation. under don frank there now has been 50 million words. 39 percent of them went through so now we have another 20 more to go. the affect of that he is is that allotted energy that should be put into regulating people on creating jobs is being put into basically trying to deal with regulations. how much money do you think the banks will spend in the lobbying efforts on this > there will be no answer to that question. how much money is involved here is a very significant amount. for example i just noticed that j.p. morgan is adding 5000 people to address our response to regulatory on one activity. this 5000 people could be trying to make loans. senator greg pleasure to have you with us today, thank-you and come back again. keep us posted. >thank-you! thanks for your time, appreciate it. still to come-- t

, having an economy with enough jobs for people where it can be stable, services on the health side is what it will take. homelessness has been an issue that is always a perennial issue that people are using in campaigns, what they are going to do to resolve the homeless issue. sometimes, i see them being scapegoat as the cause of a problem, but we need to think of it in a compassionate way, how we can provide real care that will help people turn their lives around. the success is how we are able to help people to make the changes in their lives where they can have housing, a job, independent living, where there are free of the services that we helped them to maintain that level of freedom. >> what about the challenges that you face in your district, the on met challenges? what about those issues? >> one of the biggest issues is jobs. young people finding work. i was just talking with the director of the department of children, youth, and families, talking about doing outreach to businesses to see how we can encourage some incentives to hire young people. that is a big issue. a lot of peopl
toward that we're talking about one-sixth of the economy that is now vulnerable because a website, as the president put it, didn't work because obama care itself is built now on what we see as a very, very faulty assumption and presumption because of the mandate that young people are going to sign up for health care that they typically do not need. these riks are very high. where are the republicans headed now, and what is the course you all will follow? >> well, we are going to continue to get to the bottom of this. you know, you pointed out one major issue here, and the cybersecurity issue, as you heard, that we're very concerned about that. you know, there are americans who are managing to get onto the website at this point at some time, and they are vulnerable to cybersecurity issues. if you saw sebelius, she looked like a deer in the headlights because she couldn't answer those questions. at the same time, how long are we going to continue in this failed policy? we don't have to go down this road. we can end it. this thing is dying of self-inflicted mortal wounds. and we can'
surprised almost everyone and kept pumping money into the economy, buying $85 billion a month in bonds. after the government shutdown and back-to-back economic data came out, most investors think the interest rates will be held down into next year. the fed will pour over three reports, the producer price index tells us about wholesale inflation. keeping inflation under control is one of the fed's key missions. we'll see how shoppers are feeling. retail sales numbers will tell us if people are out spending again. today, consumer confidence figures will let us know how secure shoppers feel. that makes these reports especially important, but one analyst says expectations are low. >> we know from census data that the average income of americans is roughly the same as it's been for the last couple of years, and incomes are in fact 8% below the levels of the last recession, so this is certainly a reason for consumers to be tight-fisted. >> futures are flat, traders waiting for those chick numbers and the fed's decision. stocks barely budged yesterday, investors appearing not wanting to do to
